Arranged Marriage Vs. Love Marriage

Arranged Marriage vs Love Marriage

Arranged Marriages & Love Marriages are the two main Types of Weddings. Comparison between both of them has always been a hot topic for debate and discussion. People usually have different point of views for these two. Some like to go the western way i.e. love marriage and some people like to go the traditional Indian culture way i.e. arranged marriage route. Preferences differ from culture to culture.

Here is a compilation of major difference between both of them:

Cultural Background

Cultural Marriages in India

In India, most of the cultures prefer arranged marriages. They do not support love marriages as they feel it is a violation of their cultural boundaries. This usually happens in tier 2 & 3 cities. On the other hand, love marriages have greater acceptance in tier 1 cities as they are much more advanced & modern in their thinking.

Caste Differences

Love marriages amongst inter caste people are rarely been accepted as against marriages. Again inter-religion marriages have much lesser acceptance than inter caste ones. This is another reason as to why people prefer arranged marriages because it allows them to find a match within own community itself.
